just bought 1991 prelude sr (2.0 si)

hey there i was just curious as to wether or not my money was well spent.
the good with the car, it has very little body rust most of it is surface or has been "fixed" by the previous owner engine is still strong from what i can tell it burns very little to no oil interior is clean aside from one cigaret burn on the passenger seat. shifts nicely clutch still seems to have lots of life yet.
the bad it needs a power steering pressure hose dear lord i know there god awful to replace i helped the wrecker take one off but was only charged 60$ for one and from what i can tell it needs a main seal but im going to be doing the t-belt and water pump at the same time anyway oh and the engine has 310xxx km i paid 900$ for the car

my plans for the car was to try and find either a b20a or a b20a5 build over the winter and attempt to have a built turboed engine by this time next summer im hoping for 325-350 horse how realistic is this also it has a b21a1 in it atm.

will post pics a little bit later im curious if anybody on here knows this car it does have a preludezone.com sticker on the passenger window.

post the picture and maybe someone here can tell...


for $900 the car is a good deal. I mean, it's over 20 years old let's be real.

someone actually swapped in a b21 into a 2.0si?

When you do the t-belt, it is worth while to replace the tensioner, water pump, front main seal, and cam seals. Especially the seals though, because they cost $15-$35 depending on where you buy.

If there is no rust, you got a steal of a deal.

I can help you with the powersteering line reroute.

I make a custom line that will be much easier to install and take apart when you need to work on the motor.

Her is what it looks like.



Here is where you can see more information on it.
